“This is a compelling opportunity, both personally and professionally,” says Scott Greatorex, who recently joined the School of Nursing as associate dean for development and alumni relations, responsible for fundraising, alumni relations, and overall development strategy. “It’s a chance to continue building on the university’s reputation as a leader in global problem-solving and the vital role the School of Nursing plays in that process.”
Greatorex joined Johns Hopkins in 2008 as a major gift officer on the Regional and International Programs team. In 2011, he was appointed director of development for the Regional Major Gifts Program, which raised on average $8 million-plus and conducted well over 600 visits every fiscal year under his leadership.
Previously, he worked in undergraduate admissions, financial aid, graduate student recruitment and marketing at Goucher College and then Loyola College (now Loyola University Maryland). He has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maine and master’s degrees in liberal studies and business administration from Loyola.
Part of the implementation team for the university’s multiyear, multibillion-dollar Rising to the Challenge campaign, Greatorex adds that he took notice of Dean Patricia Davidson’s arrival in 2013. “Out of the gate, she left an impression that she was an entrepreneur and very interested in promoting the importance of nursing as a profession that is so essential to the enterprise of health care. She is years ahead in her thinking. She wants to do big things in research, education, and collaboration. Promoting that vision as associate dean puts me right in the center of all the action here.”
